The Greenhouse with P.M. Freestone is a monthly newsletter about growing plants, stories and ideas.

It stems from one of the most common questions an author receives:

Where do your ideas come from?

Me? I spend a lot of time in my garden. Many story seeds have germinated while I’ve been digging, pruning or weeding. Before I had a plot to call my own, I collected houseplants. Scotland is also a great place for foraging—follow the seasons for blackberries and elderflower, rosehips and wild garlic.

My lifelong ambition is to run a garden-to-table writing retreat. Folk would tend their creativity among flowers and fruit trees, and I’d get to make them delicious meals in exchange for nerdy chats.

But that’s a blue-sky dream.

In the meantime, there’s this space. I’ll take you behind-the-scenes of my books and writing process, share a bunch of cool stuff I find along the way (including peeks into my garden!), and interview interesting people about how they grow plants, stories and ideas.

Sound like your thing?
